How did you come to CrossFit? Was in search for that special feeling when you have done way more then good.
A friend gave me the link to crossfit.com back in 2007. That was it!
Why did you open your own box?
To have place where I can become CrossFit, and of course to bring as many of friends with me on the journey.
Why exactly should I join YOUR box? What makes it standout from others?
We coach and encourage people to become their best no matter what. We always find a way for you to be able to perform your best. And most important-we have fun!
